Pelosi Battles Pro-Amnesty Demonstrators At DREAM Act Event
A group of undocumented protesters shouted down House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a community event on Monday for working with President Trump to pass the DREAM Act.
Pelosi responded to the outburst in impolitic fashion, yelling for the protesters to “Stop it!”
Pelosi was attending an event in San Jose with California Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman when a group of around 40 protesters interrupted with shouts of “Let us speak,” and “No lip service.”
San Francisco’s CBS affiliate reported that some of the demonstrators carried signs reading “Democrats are Deporters.”
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A vocal group of undocumented youths and their supporters drowned out House Minority Nancy Pelosi Monday at a news conference where she was calling on the Trump administration to immediately pass the DREAM Act.
The event began calmly with a smiling Pelosi at the podium surrounded by Congresswoman Barbara Lee and Congressman Jared Huffman, community leaders and other Dreamers.
She had began her speech, calling dreamers courageous.
“Our nation’s dreamers are an inspiration to all of us,” she said. “With their courage and their patriotism. They embody the promise of America… of the American Dream… Make America dream again,” Pelosi said to applause from the partisan crowd.
They appeared upset that Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have been negotiating with Trump in order to pass a law that will grant amnesty to people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.
“We undocumented youth demand a clean bill…We undocumented youth demand that you do not sell out our community and our values…We undocumented youth will not be a bargaining chip for Trump,” the agitators shouted, according to CBS San Francisco.
After the initial outburst from protesters, Pelosi tried to regain control of the event.
“Let me say this, because you’ve had your say, and it’s beautiful to our ears to hear you protecting your self dignity,” Pelosi began.
“No lip service!” the demonstrators chanted.
“Stop it. Just stop it now,” Pelosi repeated over and over.
“Yes or no!” the protesters screamed.
“To what?” Pelosi asked in response.
“We do not owe you nothing,” the protesters shouted, adding: “This is what democracy looks like!”
OH the irony!!!!!!!!!
